|My mom and I were talking a few days ago about those Bumbo seats that hold infants safely in a sitting position before they can sit up on their own – they’re similar to a booster chair but without the harness. I had heard of them before but I knew they were kind of expensive given the relatively short time frame that they’re useful.|
Well, yard sales are really great places to get expensive stuff for cheap! The old saying, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, is really true. I found a used blue Bumbo baby seat in like-new condition this morning at a yard sale in my neighborhood for $5! These chairs retail for $39.99, and I looked on eBay and Craig’s List to see the average price for a used one, which was around $25. Basically, I got a great deal.
I never would have paid $39.99 for one before today, but my son and I both love it so much that I think it’s worth that price (but only if you can’t find one at a yard sale!). Now I want the little play table/tray attachment that goes with it.
Our Bumbo sitter keeps baby happy and safe so I can get a few things accomplished!
